Okay, after a stressful morning, a BEA response has been reached! I spoke to a Live Chat person who rudely stated that there was a fee to attend BEA. This is NOT the case. People who are attending BBC and BEA will pay a fee by registering through the non-editorial link (make sure you click on the prices to enter for BBC) here: http://bit.ly/gJToTW
People, such as myself, who only want to attend BEA will be free, make sure you register through press (editorial) here: http://bit.ly/exM0xE
I had registered before they took it down for maintenance so if you're on the same boat, you should be fine. The educated live chat person expressed that my registration was complete and that I was all set.
So, if you're a blogger who has paid for BBC without any knowledge please make sure you go here to speak to a Live Chat person: http://bit.ly/hiuy92 or even give them a call for a better response.
